Probably so, but it won't be offered by me! If it doesn't look right to me... it doesn't get my name on it!

Re: Back-half, Corvette C4 in 69

Stupid Shockwave question:

Do you not not need shocks with the shockwave? Or do you just not have the mounts built yet?

DropmemberC4 Front- $1350 (includes all fabricated pieces that I build, includes trans crossmember, all necessary hardware and rack and pinion notches). Additional items you will need are: C4 Suspension Components (1988-1996), C4 rack and pinion, and Shockwaves (SKW1030). The rear back half does not have a price tag yet.

The Shockwave has an adjustable shock built into it. It is the equivalent of a coil-over, but with a bag in place of a steel spring.

That looks great. If you chip out the concrete I'm sure you can get it lower.

He will be running the 265 35s all the way around.

Tony your stuff should be there mid-week. And for the front tire issue you asked me about... there are a few different ways to accomplish what you want... it can be done.

It will be getting a slight chop and a body drop to put the pinch welds on the ground... then we will have to chip out the concrete!

Re: Back-half, Corvette C4 in 69

Nice work Nathan!!!!!! I like your rear setup! How are you going to run the air lines to the bags? Anything creative? How much lift are you getting with the shockwaves v2 and the IRS? What ratio did you go with? Looks good and keep up the great work!

ps. Have you had a chance to look for the tracking #'s. If you can't find it and i have no idea what happened to them can you please remake them and i will pay for them again. I need them but I'm not in a rush. Thanks Josh

Re: Back-half, Corvette C4 in 69

Nathan,

Great build. I was glad to get to see your work in person. Hopefully we can see more of this one.

By the way, I got a build thread for my truck going. I can't wait to get the rest of the parts.
